Thinking Of You

 I raided my Awaiting Crafting boxes for the image, sentiment and paper for this card - and then got no further until today.  It is another overcast day here so would be good for getting some housework done - instead I am cardmaking!

Happy Birthday

During the month of February, there have been weekly Birthday themed challenges.  This week, the theme is Bling (Sparkle and Shine).  I have managed to use all of the Imagine That! Digis images in my Awaiting Crafting box with the exception of one so some definite progress in reducing the Awaiting Crafting boxes.

Look Around and see all the Beauty still around you, and be Happy

 This is the third card using the rows of the February BINGO board at Catch The Bug.  I have used the bottom row of Dots/Stripes, Pearl and Flower.

The sentiment was inspired by the current situation when international travel is largely not possible.  I wanted to convey that even though we can't travel internationally, we are still surrounded by beauty if we actually look around and see it.

Congratulations

 Another couple of digital papers used from my Awaiting Crafting box.  If I could use as many as I have today, every day, then I would get to the bottom of the box!

The Outlawz Saturday Challenge - Sentiments
https://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/saturday-paper-a-la-mode/forum/topics/saturday-paper-a-la-mode-challenge-february-13-2021-through-febru

Love Through The Ages

I had a bit of trouble deciding on an image for this challenge - there were so many possibilities!  Maybe I should have made more than one project and that would have solved the problem.  

I have used a vintage looking paper which I inked around the edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.  I used the same ink to ink the edges of the image and also the card front.  The image is from Gecko Galz and is one of the images shared during the month of February.  I added three hearts that I had in my stash that were a good match for the paper and inking.

Nevermore Goth

 I came across this challenge from another blogger that I follow.  I had a look at the image and decided I would join in this month.  I'm not sure if I will join in every month though as I already have quite a few challenges that I join in on regularly.  I'll see how I go - and how inspired I am by the image.


I would like to enter:

Nevermore Designs - February Image
https://nevermoredesigns.blogspot.com/p/monthly-gothic-challenge.html

I used the "swinking" technique to create the background.  This basically involves swiping ink pads across the cardstock.  I added a digital paper from Summer Driggs from my Awaiting Crafting digital paper box.  The image is the February Image from Nevermore Designs.    I also added a spider embellishment as what is a spider web without a few spiders!

The secret of a perfect marriage ....Still remains a secret!

 I have a number of Bugaboo images in my Awaiting Crafting image box so I am going to try and do all three rows of the February BINGO board.  This is the top row of button, twine and heart:

All That Glitters

 This image reminds me of my daughter's cat.  When she wasn't trying to eat the fake snow tips on the tree she was trying to climb into it.  Her cat is black too.  Since my daughter knows what her cat is like, she bought all non-fragile decorations so when the cat knocked them down they didn't break!  The extra kitty I added is the same colour as her previous kitty which didn't get along with the younger one so we now have her.  So, daughter's christmas card already made in February!

https://showusyourpussies.blogspot.com/2021/02/show-us-your-pussycats-challenge-63.html

The digital paper is from Gecko Galz Peppermint Lane.  It was a bit too strong against the image so I inked over it with Distress Ink.  The images and the sentiment are also from Gecko Galz.  The main image is the February Challenge image, the kitty cat is from Here Kitty Kitty and the sentiment is from Xmas Words.  I added some Kindy Glitz to the tree decorations and the sentiment.  Matting is pink cardstock.

Deck The Halls

Doesn't this little kitty look like the boss of everything!  I had intended to include this at CRAFT Challenge but I was more tired than I realised and fell asleep early last night - and it closes during the night.

Happy Anniversary To A Very Sweet Couple

My god-daughter got married last December to a Maori girl.  I thought that this paper was perfect for them (wish I had found it in my stash when I was making their wedding card).  Once I started thinking it was perfect for them, I decided that I would get ahead of myself and create an anniversary card for them.  Now, I just have to remember about it by the time it gets to late November/early December!

Dance Like Nobody's Watching

When I looked at this image for this card, I could imagine this girl dancing around in her gumboots.  I think it was raining her at the time so I thought about dancing in the puddles. Anyway, it was enough to inspire this particular sentiment!

Today we have another sunny day so it looks like summer is going to hang on for a little while yet.
